Abstract

Dynamic uncertain causality graph (DUCG), which is based on probability theory, is used for uncertain knowledge representation and reasoning. However, the traditional DUCG has difficulty expressing the causality of the events with crisp numbers. Therefore, an intuitionistic fuzzy set based dynamic uncertain causality graph (IFDUCG) model is proposed in this paper. The model focuses on describing the uncertain event in the form of intuitionistic fuzzy sets, which can handle with the problem of describing vagueness and uncertainty of an event in the traditional model. Then the technique for order preference by similarity to an ideal solution (TOPSIS) method is combined with IFDUCG for knowledge representation and reasoning so as to integrate more abundant experienced knowledge into the model to make the model more reliable. Then some examples are used to validate the proposed method. The experimental results prove that the proposed method is effective and flexible in dealing with the difficulty of the fuzzy event of knowledge representation and reasoning. Furthermore, we make a practical application to root cause analysis of aluminum electrolysis and the results show that the proposed method is available for workers to make decisions.
